That would mean they actually removed code as in an iOS app, you'd need
additional code to have the screen on (previous behavior) so technically
they have undone a feature that was implemented without thinking of its
impact to users who rely on this behavior.

The correct way to handle this would simple be by configuration (defaulting
to existing behavior, and letting users opt out of this feature if they
choose to do so). This is software design 101

This issue is not solved. Please fix it. 

 

The fact that the screen dims could really put drivers in risk of distracted driving. This is a feature that is very imporant to those who drive as a living. 

 

It also could potentially force users to switch to another service that does offer this feature.

Completely ludicrous this was not patched the second it was reported.

This is a corporate FAIL on part of Spotify.
At least the News is getting out there ....

This issue is not solved! Please fix it and stop being disingenuous. You all need to acknowledge that you removed behavior wanted and expected by users, and reinstate it, or people like me will be leaving for other services.

This seems to also be the case for Apple Music. Spotify team, if this is an OS-related thing, say so instead of just remaining silent.
